Have you guys thought about using the SockJS library to implement the<br>
websockets?  It falls back to older methods if the browser doesn&#39;t<br>
support Websockets, and is designed as a drop-in replacement for<br>
websocket objects.  There is a tornado-sockjs package as well.<br></blockquote><div><br></div>Yes, I&#39;m aware of this (and similar projects, like <a href="http://socket.io">socket.io</a>).<br><br>I think it will be quite some time before we have done enough of the more interesting/important work before we get to considering supporting Websocket-less environments, at which point we can look at whether websocket support has not improved enough.<br>
